Can One Word Change Your Life?

God spoke one word clearly during the lecture phase; “Montana.” When I was 19 I left England and eagerly boarded a plane for The Netherlands to do a Discipleship Training School (DTS) at YWAM Heidebeek. As the oldest of four, I couldn’t wait to finally leave home and do something that was just mine. God […]

The Crux of Self-pity

Within a rock climbing route, there is often one spot defined as the crux.  The moment of truth.  The technical portion that once one is able to move beyond it, they can be certain no part of the route will be as challenging as what they just passed.  The crux is the critical point of […]

What If God Isn’t Telling Me What to Do?

…but as life continues, you realize just how out of control you are. Life is always full of transition. Whether it’s moving, a new job, relationships changing or ending, or even a perspective shift. Transition is inevitable and in many ways, unwelcome. We enjoy stability and knowing what tomorrow will bring. It brings us security […]

Can WE change lives?

Reaching out. In the past 6 months, I’ve seen this phrase play out in Scripture repeatedly. In Luke chapter 8 Jesus was on his way to the ruler of the Synagogue’s house to heal the ruler’s deathly ill daughter.

As I entered into 2017, I felt the Lord ask me to work on one thing this year:  to PAUSE. Pause is defined as “a temporary stop in action or speech” and while it’s easy to hit the pause button on my phone or computer… I’ve learned that it is REALLY hard to hit the […]

How do you Find Rest in the Midst of Chaos?

A car crash. A head injury. A near broken toe. A long to-do list. An unexpected blessing. A teaching on worship. What do these all have in common? Well, they were all a part of a journey that God took me on to find where true rest lay. In the midst of the chaos, I […]

How Do You Figure Out What To Do Next?

“Lord, you are my portion and my cup of blessing; you hold my future. I will bless the Lord who counsels me – even at night when my thoughts trouble me.” – Psalm 16:5,7 CSB As a people who have been redeemed, a people who have embraced the turn from one way of life to […]

What I Learned About God Through a Game of Golf

I recently celebrated my 24th Birthday here in Montana, which is something entirely different than what I’m used to in Long Island N.Y (shout-out). My best friend Patrick (also, shout-out) kindly took me to go golfing. Being the old man that I am now, this sounded like the perfect day. Just my best friend and […]

Why is it so Difficult to Trust God?

Why does it always seem so difficult to trust God? Recently, I was studying and teaching the book of Samuel.  In this book, there is a strong contrast between the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David.  In the heart of the book, we discover what separates these two individuals:  that David is a […]
